Ideal Hardware has backed down in its pursuit of legal action against Protac International Computer. Ideal issued a writ against Protac in October 1996 for marketing product under the brand-name of Videal.
A statement issued by Ideal announced that Protac will market product under both the original coloured Videal logo and an amended monochrome version. The statement says the matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of both parties.
Ideal Hardware had claimed that Protac, a distributor for Far Eastern manufacturer PC Chips, was trying to pass itself off as Ideal through the Videal brand name. Protac retorted that the company had sold 35,000 keyboards, speakers, mice, monitors and notebooks under the Videal name before they had even come to Ideal Hardware?s attention.
